Hey! My name is Kristen Magee, and I love paper. It’s more of an obsession, really. Stationery, greeting cards, posters and art prints, paper crafts, papercuts, paper sculpture, paper art, and on and on … if it’s made out of paper, then I’m interested. Paper Crave is my outlet for sharing my favorite paper finds, and I think that I love paper even more now than I did when I started this site in 2006. I wouldn’t have guessed this was possible, but it is!

So, what else do I do? I’ve been a freelance designer and web developer for over 15 years (whoa!) and, over the past few years, I’ve made the transition to designing, crafting, and illustrating products and projects for my shop, k.becca, where I license everything from clip art to digital stamps to die cutting files for both personal and commercial use. I’ve also had the pleasure of working with some amazing clients to develop everything from calendars to craft products.

More recently, I delved deeper into my intense interest in invitations and launched Invitation Crush, where I exclusively feature invitations and announcements for all sorts of occasions. If you dig pretty invites, then please stop over and check it out!

Oh, and I am shameless about my love of owls, ’80s music, scratch and sniff stickers, rainbows, and murder mysteries (Nero Wolfe and Poirot are my favorites), so don’t be surprised if you see references pop up in posts here and there. Yep, shameless.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you enjoy all of the paper-filled adventures that you’ll have while browsing around the site!
